The Yamaha YP-400 employs a professional type belt-drive system with a die-cast aluminium platter, perfectly balanced to reduce distortion to an absolute minimum.
These turntables feature Yamaha's unique double-float-mounting-system by mounting the turntable and tonearm on a single base, isolated from the chassis by shock-absorbing spring mounts. The motor is similarly mounted on a separate base, further reducing the minuscule motor vibrations that reach the turntable base to an unmeasurable quantity.
The YP-400 also features a simple auto return function so that your stylus is saved from any unnecessary wear and tear.
This is a used unit.
- This unit is in great condition for something which was produced in between 1974 and 1975. It shows some general wear from use and age like some nicks and scratches. There is a sticker on the front from a Japanese motorcycle club. Please see photos for further details. Overall this is still a nice vintage piece.
- The Dust cover on this unit is hinged. It has some minor scratches and scuffs on it. Latches show some light oxidisation. This general wear does not detract from the use or functionality.
- This unit will ship with a headshell and an Audio-Technica AT-DS3 cartridge and stylus. These have also been used but are in great condition to get you started.
- The performance of this unit is excellent.
Please be aware this unit is 100V. This means it MUST be used with a step-down transformer, not a travel adaptor. If you are unsure about this please let us know. We have some great, compatible step-downs for sale HERE. They are designed in Australia for use in Australia and can be run 24/7.
